The blood was all over the rug, it was a rainy day that May evening. I could still here the loud
shots as I layed on the ground, knocked unconscious. As I tried to open up my eyes, I tried to
recall. what had led me to this moment.
Immediately, I felt my thoughts getting away with me.
“ My Keyla, Please baby girl, be okay” !
Suddenly, I could not breath, “ Oh I thought to myself it finally has happened! As I opened my eyes
I began to to not only see but hear an officer’s voice calling me.
At first all I heard was really muffled, for a second there I thought I was going deaf.
Then my thoughts all began to drift away.
“ Sadie, Please, calm down! Please put the gun down”!
I thought to myself what was going on, am I dreaming, is this for real, what happened? I kept
trying to scream, but I felt so weak.
“ Help me! Help me! please “ Help me”!
“ Sadie, please, please, stop this, “ I am begging you”!
Mam!, Mam!, called a man’s voice.
“ Can you hear me, mam, the man, called out to her once again.
“ Ah, yes I said trying to stay calm.
“Good, he said in a calming tone.
As he continued speaking, I was in and out of consciousness.
I thought of happier times. I began to see my daughter’s precious face and how happy she
made me. However, it was then that I began to gain this horrible feeling inside of me.
“ Keyla! Darling, please come to mommy”!
“ Sadie! Sadie! please! come on now”!
“ Give me the baby, now, or I swear”...
All of a sudden, there was so much screaming, and I felt like I had fallen from the sky,
and I felt my body quivering with so much pain.
“ Oh Keyla, Keyla! my sweet girl, Mommy is not going to lose you, I love
All of a sudden, I felt very cold and scared. I still did not understand what was happening.
I tried to gather some answers, however I was getting more and more tired and weak.
